  • How long since you gave birth? Are you nursing exclusively, supplementing, pumping, etc? Have you spoken to a lactation consultant?

  • Define "not producing." Normal pump output is half an ounce to two ounces combined from both breasts.

    It's very normal for one side to produce nothing more than drops. This is like being right or left handed. You can nurse a baby on oone breast for years.
